Earley pearls – a necklace made from the Earley family buttons
Got a box or jar full of buttons carefully saved by your mother or grandmother? For 2015 I’m in search of great ways to put those buttons to use. Here is this week’s idea:
I love this eclectic collection of buttons made into a lovely and fun necklace. The base of the necklace looks like some type of braided string or cording. I think one of the things that makes this work is how the creator make groupings of buttons, often of the same type. While most of the buttons are basic white pearl buttons there are a few other fun trinkets sprinkled in. I’m putting this project on my someday projects list. Sure hope that isn’t too faraway.
It would be a good idea to document where the buttons for your project came from and any relevant stories or information about that person or family. If you are looking for more button crafts, check out my Pinterest board.
